It’s the most wonderful time of the year

We are in the Christmas swing of things here after a great Thanksgiving holiday.  Well it was sorta great.  Jack was a wee bit on the whiny side the whole break.  I am attributing it to going to bed late every night and waking up at the same old time.  We are trying to rebound this week.  It has been semi-rough.  But I am hoping he is almost back to his pleasant self.  I am beginning to wonder if we can survive the twos.  But I am optimistic.  I think I am going to institute an obedience chart sometime soon.  Maybe that will lessen the times he visits the corner and the number of times I have to count to 3.  Parenting is great-huh?  Especially when you don’t really know what you’re doing.


But at least there were a few good times including sledding.  Our backyard is perfect for it.

We got our tree this past weekend and decorated it last night.  It was fun to see Jack put the ornaments up.


This is how he did it.  Just putting the boxes in the tree.  Funny.


We had this cute girl cheering us on!  She’ll be all over it next year.

But for the most part, Dan and I did the ornamenting which includes Dan’s super hero corner and the battle that never ends…not even at Christmas!


And a look at our house all decorated.  Being a homeowner at Christmas is fun!

  1. I love the holidays and I love your tree that shines through the window! Because we are going home for Christmas, we are skipping out on getting a tree this year…feel sad about it now that I see yours.

  2. Very exciting! I love the house but what is all that white stuff on the grass area? It looks like you guys will be covered in snow all winter long up on that mountain. Oh, Dan, you are such a good dad! I know you enjoy it just as much as your son but you’re still a trooper. Feel like Sophie will be walking any day now. Where does the time go?

  3. Love it! I’m so jealous that you have a real tree. I love the real ones and how it makes your house smell so wonderful! Oh and GO JAZZ!! 🙂 Sorry Amy. And you have the most perfect spot to put your Christmas Tree! Love you all!

  4. Oooo, I love the Christmas tree in the front window!!! Have you had any of your ornaments break. I’ve glued buzz and woody back together 3 times. The twos are definitely tricky and once you do figure something out, something changes. Gotta love it!

  5. Love your Christmas decorations! The snow makes it look even more cozy and cute!

    I’m so worried about the two’s!! Give me any great advice you might have!
